State Assembly

Depending on where you live, you may have one of the below State Assembly races on your ballot.

  • Jim Wood

    Reelect State Assemblymember Jim Wood to keep AD-02 on the right track for progress. 

     

    The Position

    State assemblymembers represent and advocate for the needs of their district constituents at the California State Capitol. They are responsible for creating, debating, and voting on legislation that addresses issues within their district.

    The California State Assembly has 80 districts. Each represents a population of at least 465,000 Californians. Representatives are elected to the Assembly for a two-year term. Every two years, all 80 seats are subject to election. Members elected before 2012 are restricted to three two-year terms (six years) in the Assembly. Those elected in or after 2012 are allowed to serve 12 years total across both the state Senate or the Assembly. This term, Democrats currently hold a two-thirds supermajority of 56 seats in the California State Assembly, while Republicans hold 19 seats. One seat is held by an Independent and four seats are currently vacant. 

     

    The District

    California’s Second Assembly District includes Trinity, Del Norte, Humboldt, Mendocino, and parts of Sonoma Counties. Democrats typically hold this district. Of the registered voters in this district, 21% are Republican and 51% are Democrat, and the district’s demographic breakdown is 13% Latino, 3% Asian, and 2% Black. After the 2021 redistricting process, AD-02 is 2% more Democratic than it was during the 2020 general election cycle. The most recent election results show that AD-02 voted for Joe Biden for president in 2020 by 41 points and Gavin Newsom for governor in 2018 by 35 points.

     

    The Race

    There are two candidates running for this seat, including Democrat Incumbent Representative Jim Wood and Republican Charlotte Svolos. Wood’s campaign has raised $522,785. He has accepted donations from the fossil fuel and real estate industries, police unions, and corporate PACs, including tens of thousands of dollars from the pharmaceutical and health-care industries. Svolos’s campaign has not filed any fundraising receipts for the current election cycle.

     

    The Recommendation

    Assm. Jim Wood, a longtime public servant and former emergency responder and dentist, is from Turlock, CA, and now lives in Santa Rosa. He has lived on the North Coast for more than 30 years. According to campaign materials, Assm. Wood is running for reelection to increase access to affordable quality health care, expand broadband access, and improve wildfire prevention. Assm. Wood won his 2020 reelection against a Republican challenger by 37 points.

    Assm. Wood’s priorities for AD-02 this year have included 34 bills about health care, infrastructure, wildfire prevention and safety, and game hunting, of which 14 have successfully passed the Assembly. Seven have passed the Senate and been signed into law. He currently holds leadership roles on five committees: he chairs the Health Committee, and sits on the Committees on Budget, Agriculture, Insurance, and Natural Resources. He scores an all-time score of 86 out of 100 on Courage Score, our annual analysis of legislators’ progressive voting records. Based on our Courage Score analysis, Assm. Wood has supported the most progressive bills that made it to a vote. That said, in the past Assm. Wood has not supported legislation that put limits on asset forfeiture abuse by law enforcement.

    Prior to his election to the State Assembly, Assm. Wood served as mayor of Healdsburg. He began his career as a dentist, and acted as an emergency responder during 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and the Camp Fire. As a legislator, he helped establish a disaster-identification team. Wood is a longtime supporter of broadening access and affordability to health care. He sponsored legislation that protected patients from surprise bills, extended affordable medical coverage for mental, behavioral, and dental care, and improved medical care in rural areas.

    Assm. Wood has the endorsement of a strong majority of progressive groups, including Planned Parenthood, Equality California, the Sierra Club, and labor unions, like NUHW, AFSCME, and the California Labor Federation. He is also endorsed by the Peace Officers Research Association, a police organization. However, the threat of Republican challenger Charlotte Svolos’s potential policies greatly outweighs Wood’s lack of campaign-finance pledges. Based on our analysis, Assm. Wood’s track record and policy positions demonstrate that he will continue to be a champion for the constituents of AD-02 and will govern effectively in the best interest of this district.

    California’s 4th Assembly District includes parts of Yolo, Napa, Lake, Sonoma, and Colusa Counties. Democrats typically hold this district. Of the registered voters in this district, 22% are Republican and 49% are Democrat, and the district’s demographic breakdown is 22% Latino, 9% Asian, 3% Black. After the 2021 redistricting process, AD-4 is as Democratic as it was during the 2020 general election cycle. The most recent election results show that AD-4 voted for Joe Biden for president in 2020 by 36 points and Gavin Newsom for governor in 2018 by 28 points.

     

    The Race

    There are two candidates running for this seat, including Democrat Incumbent Representative Cecilia Aguiar-Curry and Republican challenger Bryan Pritchard. Assm. Aguiar-Curry’s campaign has raised $528,000 and has received donations from fossil fuel, police, real estate, and corporate PAC interests. Pritchard’s campaign has raised $50,000 and is primarily funded through individual donations. 

     

    The Recommendation

    Assm. Aguiar-Curry, a businesswoman and farmer, is from Yolo County. According to campaign materials, she is running for reelection to continue the work of addressing health care, economic development, and environmental issues for the constituents of AD-4. Assm. Aguiar-Curry won her 2020 reelection against Republican Matthew Nelson by 34 points.

    Assm. Aguiar-Curry’s priorities for AD-4 this year have included 41 bills about health care and technology. Of these, nine have been chaptered into law, four have died, and the rest remain in committee. She currently serves on five committees, including as chair of the Local Government Committee. She also serves as chair of the Select Committee on Wine. She scores a Lifetime CS of 74 out of 100 on Courage Score, our annual analysis of legislators’ progressive voting records. Based on our Courage Score analysis, Assm. Aguiar-Curry has supported some progressive bills that made it to a vote. However, she failed to cast a vote on bills related to retail climate measures and carbon neutrality, worker protections, and criminal-justice reform. 

    Prior to her election to the State Assembly, Assm. Aguiar-Curry was a water and agriculture consultant, an elected member of the Winters City Council, and the first woman to serve as mayor. She has also held a variety of local volunteer and leadership roles, including chair of the Yolo Housing Commission and vice chair of the Yolo County Water Commision. Historically, her family had strong connections to farming, and she still owns an 80-acre walnut orchard with her brothers. As mayor, she established an agricultural innovation hub, and in the Assembly, she has worked on several projects to protect environmental areas in her district.

    Assm. Aguiar-Curry has the endorsement of some progressive groups, including Planned Parenthood Northern California Action Fund, Equality California, and California Teachers Association. She has also received the endorsement of many elected officials, including State Treasurer Fiona Ma and Lt. Governor Elena Kounalakis. However, Assm. Aguiar-Curry has also received the formal endorsement of California Correctional Peace Officers Association, and has received campaign donations from a variety of problematic organizations, including Sempra Energy, Google, Facebook, California Real Estate PAC, and California Association of Highway Patrolmen PAC. These affiliations, combined with her failure to vote in favor of progressive legislation this term, indicate that voters will benefit from working to hold Assm. Aguiar-Curry accountable to ensure that her legislative efforts continue to benefit her constituents. Based on our analysis, Assm. Aguiar-Curry will continue to be a leader for the constituents of AD-4 and will govern effectively for this diverse district with consistent voter oversight.
